Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin
Date: Saturday 19th November, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: WWK Arena, Augsburg.
Augsburg will be hoping to back up the last round’s away win at Ingolstadt as they are aiming to avoid a defeat against the in-form Hertha BCS this Saturday at their WWK Arena.
Augsburg have previously lost three in a row, though truth be told, they have faced Bundesliga stalwarts Bayern Munich in only three days, losing both of the matches with the same score line of 3-1. The main problem for the manager Dirk Schuster lies in the attacking line, since he does not have a true goal scorer up front. The best scorers in the team are Halil Altintop and Konstantinos Stafylidis, who have bagged two goals each so far in the competition.
Hungarian manager Pal Dardai does not have such problems on the other side, since Bosnian striker Vedad Ibisevic has been just phenomenal this season, netting the total of six goals so far. Salomon Kalou and Julian Schieber have also been very solid, which is why we should not be surprised to see Hertha BSC in the top part of the league standings at all. The latest of the successes came in the last round, when Hertha took a comfortable 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, with red hot Salomon Kalou, who managed to complete a hat-trick!
Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-Head Stats
If we are to judge by the head to head encounters, we can say that the fans will be super disappointed this Saturday. Amazingly, the last six matches between the two sides offered no more than three goals in total, as three of the games ended goalless! When you look at the match from this perspective, the 11/20 odds offered by the bookmakers on Under 2.5 goals in the match seem golden!
Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction
We can’t resist but to try with Hertha BSC to win the match here at super attractive 19/10 odds since they have generally been much better team throughout the course of the season and we can’t say why they would not claim three points against the average Augsburg. Vedad Ibisevic to maintain his fine form and score any-time seems as a yet another decent betting alternative, given at the odds of 13/8!
